Where does sound go?

Asked by this_velvet_glove_again (418 points ) 1 month ago

I only know that sound waves become weaker as they get away from the source, and at some point we stop hearing them. But where do they go? Do sound waves disappear? Or they travel forever? I was reading something and there was this line talking about how sounds never really “die”. Is it true, or just nice as a thought?
